Granny’s Panties and Other Unmentionables
by Heather Hibbs
We see the beautiful clothing in the movies but never stop to think about the many layers found under those outfits. Dressing was a rather daunting task in the mid 1800’s that is under appreciated in our day. This program is a fun, lighthearted look at each layer of clothing; what was worn and why it was important. We will differentiate the wardrobe of social classes and briefly explore children’s clothing and the importance of accessories.
Heather Hibbs, married to Andy, has two grown daughters.
Owner of Treadle Treasures, found on Etsy since 2010. We reproduce the clothing worn in the 1850’s and 1860’s. Our products can be found around the globe. Our clients include many reenactors and living historians, living history sites and museums, theaters, small movie companies, HBO, the History Channel, and recently, Suki Waterhouse wore one of our corsets in her Nostalgia music video.
I am very active in my church and enjoy outdoor hobbies including hiking, kayaking, gardening and relaxing on the porch.
